Hey ladies, I need to break things down for your just a little. Women tend to be avoiding being in shape and end up being in worse shape than men. Why is this? Well, we are going to walk through this and break down why women are not getting in better shape.
Women aren’t all guilty for making mistakes, and men even do the same thing. However, when it comes to fitness, you can’t just put your feet in the water; you have to jump it and go full steam. Results aren’t gained by only doing one eight of the work; we all need to give it everything to see improvement!
1. Women Don’t Do Enough Of The Right Cardio
Women, you may be guilty of doing cardio, which actually doesn’t give your body the challenge it needs. Forget the 20 minutes of cardio on an average setting and do intervals that are going to kick your booty and shape it faster as well. Try doing anywhere from 10-15 minutes on a high level for 1 minute straight and cut half that intensity for two. Doing this will burn more fat, kick start your metabolism and get muscles working harder.
2. Women May Be Talking To Much
Men are also guilty of this too! Get in and get out, the gym is no place to be talking about what you did on the weekend with your buddies. That’s what Facebook or a bar is for! Shorter rest periods equal better workouts, take care of your business and get in and out to eat and recover with proper nutrition.
3. Women May Be Not Eating Enough Protein
Many women are guilty of eating too many carbohydrates such as comfort foods that are baked, can’t forget that protein. Does protein taste bad? Simply eat more meat and veggies that are higher in protein like broccoli and asparagus. Put down that cupcake and chocolate and eat some nuts!
4. Women May Be Using Enough Weight
Really, is that 5-pound weight you are lifting going to even tone any muscle? Try doing more challenging moves that work your body and use your own body weight. Do pull ups, chin ups, dips and box jumps. This will carve some muscle and tone your entire body!
5. Not working out enough
Workout classes are not going to keep you fit if you do them twice a week, step up the workouts and go at least four days a week and go running at last twice a week. Commitment to fitness is about changing lifestyle and doing less of the activities that promote unhealthy choices.
